3rd Annual WVU Alumni Hoops Game is right around the corner
On July 29th, WVU will be having a reunion with some of the best college basketball players WVU has produced in recent years. John Flowers is the one who set this game up and wanted to expand it to Fairmont this year. Huge names like Juwan Staten, Joe Mazzulla, Mike Gansey, Da’Sean Butler, Devin Ebanks, and Truck Bryant have been confirmed to play in the game this year. It’s a charity game that benefits different organizations each year. This year the game’s profits will go toward the WVU Medicine Children’s Cure Kids Cancer Fund.
Da’Sean Butler, Devin Ebanks, Joe Mazzulla and Truck Bryant were a part of the great 2010 team that went to the Final Four. Mike Gansey was a part of the 2005 Elite Eight team that lost to Louisville in a heartbreaker; He was also a First team all Big East player. Juwan Staten is the most recent Alumni so far and lead WVU to a Sweet Sixteen birth in 2015.
The game will take place on July 29th at Fairmont State.
